A domain name is a unique address that is used on the Internet.It is what you see in the address bar after the “www” in a browser and it is what comes after the @ sign in an email address.Domain consists of two parts,the top level domain (TLD)and the second level domain i.e “test.bw “ the bw reperesents the TLD and the test represents the second level domain which is the actual name.There are country specific TOP LEVEL DOMAINS know as county code TOP LEVEL DOMAINS(ccTLDs) such as .bw for Botswana and .za for South Africa.We also have generic TOP LEVEL DOMAINS(gTLDs) like .com and .org.
